Gigi Hadid to co-host American Music Awards

Zayn Malik's supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid is to take center stage at the upcoming American Music Awards after signing on to co-host the prizegiving.

Gigi will team up with comedian Jay Pharaoh to present the bash, which will feature performances from The Weeknd, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, Shawn Mendes, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Green Day, Bruno Mars, and Twenty One Pilots, among others.

Sting, the night's American Music Award of Merit honoree, will also perform.

The show will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on 20 November (16).

Confirming her first major co-hosting gig in a statement on Friday (04Nov16), Gigi writes: "I'm so excited to host the 2016 AMAs with Jay Pharoah. Jay is known for his spot-on impressions so I can't wait to take the stage with him to show my goofy side and celebrate this year's nominees!"

And Pharoah is just as stoked to be sharing the stage with the Versace beauty, adding, "Can't wait to host the AMAs with the beautiful Gigi Hadid (so much innocence in her eyes) and being in the building with some of my industry friends, who I've probably impersonated at some point I'm sure. It's gonna be a fun night!"
